I have eaten several times at this restaurant and, while the food is quite good overall, the service is slow, sometimes terribly slow to the point that it ruins the meal. Last evening, I was there again with a party of 18; we had reserved...More

Disappointed. Last visit more than a year ago was very good. Service today was poor. New waiter was slow. It took several reminders before beer was served. There was confusion on food orders as well as the final bill. The food (chicken salad) was so-so....More

Great food, great choices and large portions. You get your money's worth. They also have great bread and dipping sauce that comes with your meals. I typically order to go.

We have attempted to dine here on two other occasions- the wait was outrageous. This time - We made reservations and waited about 15 minutes to be seated. The front staff didn’t seem to have it together as they called our name again after we...More

Had dinner there this evening. Joe's has a vast menu - which I wish had more vegan options - but I was able to modify an existing menu item. Food is fresh. Service was excellent and fast. Our waitress was Victoria. I would literally ask...More

Not Your Average Joe's is actually relatively average, at least for the area. The food is good but not great for its price point. However, the exception is whatever the cheese/olive oil mixture they bring you with the bread. That alone is worth going for....More

In town visiting family. Stopped for dinner, food was good, but not great. Service was a bit slow, and had trouble getting refills (despite low crowd). Husband enjoyed BBQ meatloaf, but I would not recommend the $22 sirloin. Nice tap beer selection. Might try again,...More
